Adoption can be a lengthy, arduous process. We’re here to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible, so that you can continue to grow your family.
Same-sex couples in Florida have several options when adopting children. The legalization of same-sex marriage gives you the right to legally adopt a child together as a married couple. If you or your partner already has a biological or adopted child, the other spouse can obtain a step-parent adoption through the courts once you are legally married.
Whether you’re starting the adoption process or have run into legal complications, we can provide you with competent counsel to assist in the process.
Most individuals have assets before entering a marriage, including real estate, retirement plans, and stock portfolios. Prenuptial (before the marriage) and postnuptial (after the marriage) agreements help divide your assets and liabilities, set aside real estate properties, address alimony or spousal support, and divide up debt.
Having an agreement in place in your same sex relationship can take out a significant portion of the stress in the event the marriage dissolves. The financial agreement in place either before getting married or after the marriage can outline the assets and liabilities provided for each partner without the need for litigation through the divorce process.
Legal issues can lead to significant emotional issues. You need someone who can support you and your needs while providing a sensitive approach to what is unique to your modern family. As allies of the LGBTQ+ community, the Law Offices of Alyssa D. Honickman empathize with the unique challenges same-sex couples face.
